Palisades del Rey
La Brea Tar Pits
Looking very incongruous, this three storey building stands just opposite the tar pits.
This mess is on the sidewalk (Brit: pavement) just outside the tar pits site. I think it is a tar pit that has escaped.
Clothes ruined by being worn in the dig.
Beverly Hills clearly has rigid planning rules. North Santa Monica Boulevard forms a sharp divide: to the south is typical downtown (Brit: city centre) building; to the north expensive housing typical of outer suburbs.

For some time I have been receiving e-mails from Ferrari Beverly Hills such as this one
. The one asking "please share your thoughts on your new Ferrari California" was addressed to Randal Haworth so it did not take any detective effort to work out that they must be intended for Randal Digby Haworth
, plastic surgeon of Beverly Hills (Wikipedia article
). His e-mail address is RHD
RHaworth but Ferrari had left out the D so the e-mails come to me.
Cheekily, I decided to drop in on him unannounced to tell him about the e-mail confusion. He was gracious enough to come into the reception area of his office, chat for a few minutes and be photographed with me.
There are at least three other plastic surgery clinics in the block at 436 North Bedford Drive.

- search for Haworth
(obviously!). Randal Digby seems to go in for being photographed with people. Here he is with Tim Blum who runs the Blum and Poe Art Gallery
in Los Angeles. The website on which I found this image seems to consist of nothing but people at receptions and the like. Then I found out that that is what Patrick McMullan
Image is from this page
(again search for Haworth
) of Randal with Ana Haworth, presumably his wife, seen in the Blum and Poe Gallery probably at the same event as the previous photo.
- protest against the hotel chain outside the Andaz West Hollywood Hotel. The hotel has erected a screen between the hotel and the sidewalk (Brit: pavement).
The closest we got to seeing the iconic Hollywood
sign on the hillside. See a parallel in Romania
